Our greatest desire is to be obedient to the Holy Spirit and the Word of God. To assist you in better understanding our worship, we have listed below some Bible verses:

Why do we clap our hands?
(Psalms 47:1)
“O clap your hands all ye people, shout unto
God with the voice of a triumph”.
Why do we lift our hands?
(Psalms 134:2)
“Lift up your hands in the sanctuary and bless the Lord”.
Why do we sing in English and in tongues?
(I Corinthians 14:15)
“I will sing with the Spirit and I will sing with understanding also.”
Why do we move in spiritual gifts?
(I Corinthians 12:7)
“But the manisfestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit all”.
